The Waiting Game…

Cindy, our transplant coordinator emailed us on Tuesday.  She said that Dr. Berg, the liver doctor, agreed that Anya is definitely going to need a double lung retransplant and a liver transplant. We were kinda holding out hope that Anya wasn’t going to need the liver transplant, but the CT scan of her liver confirmed that the liver would probably not be able to endure the rigors of the double lung retransplant.  Ugghhh…

The good news is that we now know what needs to be done.  The bad news is that the multiple organ transplant is going to be a lot more difficult to perform, which increases the risks of the operation.  With that said, if I had to pick someone to face this fight, Anya would be that person, as she is one of the strongest people that I know.  She is a fighter.

The waiting game continues.  Dr. Berg and the lung team are going to meet in the next week or two to go over this complex transplant.  There is a chance that they will not take this on.  We’ve done everything possible on our side to give them no reason to not take this on, so we are hoping for the best.  We’ll know more in a week or two.
